A Plain Disapperance--Amanda Flower

A Plain Disappearance (Appleseed Creek Mystery #3)

The Book

It's Christmastime in Amish Country, and Chloe Humphrey has begun settling into her life in Appleseed Creek excited to see where her new relationship with Timothy Troyer will lead. Unfortunately it leads to murder when the couple discovers the body of Amish teenager Katie Lambright while on their first date.

Near the scene there is evidence that Timothy's friend and auto mechanic Billy Thorpe is involved with the crime. The police reveal Billy is not really who he said he was and has been living the last decade in Knox County under a stolen alias. Now, Chloe and Timothy must find Billy, bring him to justice, or prove his innocence.
My Review:
This was my first visit to Appleseed Creek.  This is a series that you need to read in order, I was a little lost.  But other than that, I enjoyed this book.  Trouble seems to follow Chloe wherever she goes.  Her and her boyfriend, Timothy Troyer, find a the body of local Amish girl, Katie Lambright.  Chief Rose asks Chloe to talk to the Amish community to see what she can find out from them.  Chloe and Timothy get themselves into some dangerous situations trying to find the killer.  There is also more to the story than the mystery of who killed Katie Lambright.  Becky Troyer is still trying to decide if she wants to be English or Amish.  Filled with a great cast of characters this is a book that not only Amish fiction fans will enjoy, but mystery fans also.  Great job Amanda.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
